PROFESSIONAL BUILDER SECRETS PODCAST

Episode 111: Preparing for 2024 With Russ & Andy

A failure to plan is a plan to fail. In business, if we don't set targets and create strategies to reach those targets, we just end up coasting.

Professional Builders Secrets brings you an exclusive episode with co-founder of the Association of Professional Builders Russ Stephens, along with APB’s Head Coach, Andy Skarda. In this episode, the two get into how builders can best prepare for the fast approaching 2024.

Inside episode 111 you will discover:

  • How to start planning BEFORE the new year
  • When you should start planning
  • The components of a strategic plan and how much detail you should go into
  • Resources to customise your own plan today
  • And much, much more.
